Reviewed January 6, 2014

The food was very nice and has a wide variety of dishes on the menu. The fresh smoothies and fruit juices were a highlight.

“Always visit here when in HCMC”
Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

I have visited here several times with friends who live in Tao Dien. I have been just for drinks, their juices are excellent, good wine list and if you coincide a visit with happy hour, extremely good value. Also had breakfast, wonderful eggs Benedict, tapas in the early evening but on the last visit we went for lunch. We shared an excellent pizza and a large salad, washed down with a carafe of wine. It really was excellent.
If you are in Tao Dien, it is worth a visit at any time of the day and you can choose to sit in the air conditioned interior or outside on the terrace

“chilled, expats and great coffee”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

I crave a good coffee when i'm away from Australia and this place has it. They have a great menu, breakfast is awesome with fresh bread (no gluten free though) and an extensive selection of jam (including banana-passion).

“Typical Vietnamese disappointment...”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

MM is a nice place in the peaceful area of District 2, with a typical decoration, half indoor/half outdoor. The food is rather good and the service correct. But what you get in your plate is not always corresponding to the level of the menu!... In the sword fish salad, the rocket is limited to one leave only, all the rest is normal green salad!... Why should we so often get this uncomfortable feeling of being cheated in Vietnam?
